"Your Sister's Sister" (90 min.) starts off with an eye-popping 5 min. prologue: we see a group of people mourning someone's passing, and just when one of them is giving a eulogy on how great a guy that person was, Jack (played by Mark Duplass) interupts and gives his own (less idyllic) version of that man, who turns out to be his brother. Iris (played by Emily Blunt), who is Jack's best friend and was the girlfriend of his brother, eventually talks to Jack to control his emotions.

Flash forward: at Iris' suggestion, Jack agrees to retreat to the country house of Iris' family, to 'clear his head' and some much needed 'me time'. Much to Jack's surprise, it turns out that Iris' sister Hannah (played by Rosemarie DeWitt) is also there, also in need of some 'me time' after just coming out of a 7 year relationship. The next 20 min. or so nothing happens, other than Hannah and Jack sitting at the dinner table and talking, talking, talking (it's done brilliantly). Things develop from there, as Iris then shows up as well. To give away much more of the plot would really ruin your viewing experience.

This is a talk movie (filmed theatre-like) about relationships. There are no pyrotechnics, no special effects, no CGIs. Instead, this movie centers on 3 acting performances, and each of them is as good as the other. Emily Blunt continues her impressive streak of recent performances (just this year we've seen her in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Five Year Engagement, and now this). But the ultimate credit must go to writer-director Lynn Shelton, who brings it all home. This is MILES away from your standard Hollywood fare. If you are in the mood for a good indie movie that has no action whatsover but focuses on relationships, come on over, you will very much enjoy this. Meanwhile "Your Sister's Sister" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

If I'd heard the plot of this before seeing it, I'd have passed. It's tough to summarize--the magic is in the watching. So I'd have missed this little marvel of writing, acting, and directing. Jack is unsettled a year after his brother's death, and his best friend Iris (the dead brother's ex-girl friend? wife? doesn't really matter)sends him off to her family's cottage in the woods to regroup in peace and quiet. But Iris' sister Hannah has also taken refuge there, and Jack and Hannah console each other. At least we think that's what we saw. When Iris shows up next day, a lot of unsaid things float around, only some of which the audience knows. Because each of the three has a secret, because almost all the action/drama takes place in a short time, in a small place, and because the acting and directing are top-notch, this study in the complex relationship between three decent, though often confused, people, commands the viewer's interest. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next once one of them knew something else about the other two. Nor did I see the various secrets coming (all right, I'm a little slow). Everything you need to know to understand and appreciate it is included, but not a smidgen more. The filmmaker gives you credit for being quick on the uptake--I loved that.
Many a big-budget film would kill for the kind of hold this movie casts on an audience, for what looked like not much money. Just goes to show, explosions and special effects are no substitute for a compelling human interest plot and great execution.
Note: if you steer clear of movies with lesbians or occasional strong language, you should probably skip this. But you'll miss something really good.

"Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man"
Irving Berlin

Emily Blunt plays Iris, a sister to Hannah, played by Rosemarie Dewitt. They are really step sisters but who cares? Emily's best friend is Jack played by MarkDuplass. Mark is new to me in the acting word, but he is superb. He plays the laid back ex-brother-in-law to Emily. She was married to his brother but split because things didn't work out. It is the anniversary of the brother's death, and friends meet and greet. Jack has unresolved issues and Iris suggests he go to her family's cabin, an island off Seattle. Indeed he does, he bikes to the ferry and then onto the island. Breathless he arrives, only to find Hannah there trying to get over a seven year relationship. They talk, Hannah says it is fine for Jack to stay. They get along and things seem fine and dandy. The next day, Iris shows up with food for Jack, surprised to find Hannah.

This is a 'feeling, talking ' film that all will enjoy. It seemed at times to be more of an unscripted film, the flow is so well done. Little looks, asides, umm's and ahh's are placed just right. The film really succeeds because no one pushes too hard, no one is over the top, the acting is just superb. The storyline is not cliched as played. The scenery is beautiful to and fro from the island. This is an entertaining film right from the get go!

Highly Recommended. prisrob 01-13-13
